Whole Wheat French Toast with fresh Strawberry sauce

Whole Wheat French Toast with Strawberry Sauce

When you think of French toast, you may think of it as a high-calorie meal, but when you use whole grain bread, skim milk and a combination of whole eggs and egg whites, you have a slimmed-down version that is equally delicious. The strawberry sauce adds an antioxidant boost and a refreshing twist for summer.
